Last May, I gave a talk at the 3rd South African Space Association Congress on the possibility of developing a space propulsion system for moving very small satellites such as Cubesats when in orbit. This was the first time Phil and I presented our work to the local space community. We got a really positive response from everyone there and hopefully it will start building more support for the lab.
Thank you IAF for the rare and wonderful opportunity!
Just got interviewed last month by Voice of America. Our new space propulsion research laboratory is the result of collaborations between the South African National Space Agency (SANSA) and Wits university’s School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering & School of Physics.
